Had thisnissue in my 05. Had to cut off the ground connection test point where the mechanics plug in to test the grounds. It was shorted.
Sole purchase is a ground test. So I cut the plug off, soldered all the ground wires back together. Shrink wrapped it and then tapped it like crazy to keep water out. Haven't had another issue with it in over a year
Look for a bunch of green wires in the back of your bike. I don't remember what side it's on but check to see if there are any burnt marks. It's a common problem. Perhaps ask Moose to share a picture of what he soldered or fixed.
Not sure why but it failed to email me about this one. Sorry for the super late reply.
If you're still having the issue. .. the grouping of green ground wires is under the small black plastic fairing on the left side that is under your thigh. Right below the seat on the left side.
Theres about 10 or 12 wires connected into a technicians test plug. Sorry I can't find any pictures from mine. I'll keep looking. But o cut the plug off cuz it was fried. Soldered all the ground wires together. Weather sealed it. Then the bike worked fine.
Here are the photos.
First photo shows the plug in the line of all the wires. This plug is simply there for a Honda technician to plug in and test your ground wires.
Second photo shows the plug cut off the bike and you can see the scorch Mark's where it blew.
Third photo shows the soldering work before weather sealing it and putting the bike back together. The short in this plug was causing all of the problems with my bike. For some perspective it's now been a year and I haven't had another electrical problem since.
Got my first bike ever, a 2005 that I bought wrecked specifically to rebuild, well in order to replace the fairings and put all the new parts I removed the frame sliders (this is all new to me) and didn’t realize they actually mounted into what is the motor mount (am I correct?), so for reasons...
One of my buddies is selling his 2007 CBR 600rr, he’s kept it very clean, previous owner dropped it once but it only amounted in a few aesthetic scratches and nothing else (it was a standing drop in the driveway when my friend was there trying to buy it). Runs amazing. Is smooth on the road...
I love my bike, but I can't wait to get rid of it. I've had a YBR125 for a couple of years now, and it looks great and it's fantastic for city riding. But naturally, I am absolutely sick of the absolutely glacial acceleration after 40mph by now, and I'm slowly saving up to get me some more cc's...
I need help finding the right tools to work on my bike. I have a 2014 CBR600RR that I am rebuilding. I have just put the engine back into the rolling chassis, and I want to torque down a few key spots before I go any further. There are 2 20mm engine mounts, a 24mm swing-arm attachment, and the...
I’m sure this has been asked a million times and I’ve searched it but didn’t see what I was looking for.
I got my first street bike, an 06 cbr600 and I’ve been shopping around for insurance And I’m just shocked at how expensive full coverage is..yes it’s a supersport so that...
